My wife always finds great places for our trips together and this was no exception. From the outset, the relaxed mood at Hale Nalo set the tempo for our vacation and I would return to this place in a heart beat, no questions asked. Oahu is my new favorite island. We stayed in the Tree House, the self-contained unit upstairs.... More

Waimanalo is a great place to unwind and relax, only a short stroll to uncrowded Waimanalo Beach and great cafes and restaurants (esp. Sweet Home Waimanalo!) Bus stop is very close with buses frequently heading into Kailua and down to Makapuu. Hosts are extremely welcoming and the rooms, which are clean well designed, contain everything required for a perfect getaway.

We stayed in the Treetop suite at Hale Nalo in June 2014 and had a wonderful visit. On one side you have the beach, which is just 200 yards down the street (easily walkable even when carrying a chair and boogie boards) and the other side you have the mountains. You have 2 porches so you can sit and enjoy... More

My partner and I visited in October 2013 for 2 weeks and it was the perfect romantic getaway!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hale Nalo is a well-maintained beachside property offering three self-catering vacation rental studios: two 400sf Garden Suites, and the luxurious 900sf ZEN Treehouse. Built in 2008, this place was created as a place of quiet retreat for adult travelers wishing to enjoy our island home. The Garden Suites are both fully-independent studios with 14-foot high vaulted ceilings, each with their own kitchenette and over-sized private bathroom. Our Garden Suites are both corner units, situated literally in a tropical garden, shaded by the canopy of old growth guava and ulu trees. For those wanting more privacy, space and luxury, we recommend the ZEN Treehouse: a sublime second-level studio apartment with large east-west facing decks. All guests enjoy free off-street parking and high-speed internet (wifi). ISLANDS Magazine called Waimanalo Beach THE #1 Best Summer Beach in the WORLD and FORBES Magazine rated Waimanalo #5 in its 2013 List of Top 10 Beaches in the U.S. Come! We'd love to have you. ... more   less
